Fallopian Tubes

Gabriello Fallopio or Gabriel Fallopius (1523-1562), was the Italian anatomist who is credited with discovering the function of the tubes or oviducts leading from the ovary to the womb and named after him as the Fallopian tubes.  

From recent experiments, a technique has been developed known as embryo transfer, which enables a woman with a malfunction of her Fallopian tubes to give birth to a baby previously denied to her. The egg is taken from the mother for fertilisation with the father's sperm and is eventually re-implanted in the mother's womb, effectively 'by passing' the natural function of the Fallopian tubes.
